I have been obsessed with movies ever since I was a small child and even though the dynamic has changed somewhat since the inception of sites such as Netflix, I still love going to the movie theater. I went just last week with my regular movie partner Gregory Lindae, and we were talking about some of the greatest movie quotes of all time. Naturally we disagreed on a lot and my good friend asked me to spend some time and put my favorite quotes together. And so I have finally whittled it down and here is my list, let me know what you think.

“Dont ever let somebody tell you you cant do something, not even me. Alright? You dream, you gotta protect it. People cant do something themselves, they wanna tell you you cant do it. If you want something, go get it. Period.”

– Chris Gardner, from The Pursuit of Happyness

“Houston, we have a problem.”

– Apollo 13

“Love cannot be found where it doesnt exist, nor can it be hidden where it truly does”

– David Schwimmer, from Kissing a Fool

“Dont let anyone ever make you feel like you dont deserve what you want.”

– Heath Ledger, from 10 Things I Hate About You

“To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, to draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.”

– from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

If youre going to try, go all the way. Otherwise dont even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs. And maybe your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery, isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance. Of how much you really want to do it. And youll do it, despite rejection in the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

 – from Factotum

Me, I still believe in paradise. But now at least I know its not some place you can look for because its not where you go. Its how you feel for a moment in your life when youre a part of something and if you find that moment, it lasts forever. 

Leonardo di Caprio from The Beach

“The only way you can beat my crazy was by doing something crazy yourself. Thank you. I love you. I knew it the minute I met you. Im sorry it took so long for me to catch up. I just got stuck.”

— The Silver Linings Playbook

“Im also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”

— Notting Hill
